SCT X3

I got my X3 installed from Innovative this morning and what do ya know...it had to rain today. Soo i couldnt really put it to the test. I uploaded the Street tune first and in about 2 weeks im going to switch to the Economy to see which one i like better.

The first thing i noticed was the firmer shifts, i thought it was kind of lazy before but now it feels like it will chirp 2nd so to speak lol

For those who have experience with Innovatives custom tunes which one do you consider the best all around? I ask because i plan on towing a 8000lb load this weekend and didnt want to be switching back and forth between tunes.

'06 6.0 dually unstudded, straight piped

Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks

ID's regular street tune is capable to tow up to 10k, but I don't recommend it without aftermarket gauges, things get too hot, too quickly.

Ill go ahead and put the tow tune in for the weekend and take it easy until i get some gauges.

Would i just need to get a egt gauge or should i get others as well? What temp should i stay under?

Thanks

Edit: I like what the Edge Insight has to offer and its pretty easy install plus egt probe but from what i was reading in this thread :Attention EDGE Insight Users Its saying the boost numbers arent actual and that has me a little concerned. I guess if i tow conservatively it wont be that much of an issue.
